Oregon - Massive Gun Ban Introduced
Attention Oregonians.

Massive Gun Ban Introduced

Two days after Senate Democrats claimed they would not seek a ban on modern firearms and feeding devices, Democrats in the Oregon House introduced just that.

Seven Senators joined with eight House Reps to introduce a sweeping ban on virtually all modern firearms. Among the Senators is, of course, Ginny Burdick, who claimed on Wednesday “that she is backing off an attempt to push through a bill on gun clips that she drafted following the December shootings at the Clackamas Mall.” The other sponsors are:


Remember them.

HB 3200 not only bans most modern guns and magazines, it allows warrantless searches of your home, requires background checks and registration for a firearm you already own and as-of-yet undefined storage requirements. We say “a firearm” because even if you comply with the restrictions in this bill you may still only own one.

(Of course the bill does not apply to “government employees”.)

The bill combines the most extreme and irrational elements of other bills that have been introduced across the country. For example, one of the firearms banned under this bill would be a pistol with a “folding, telescoping or thumbhole stock.” No, that is not a misprint.

The principle sponsor of the bill is House Rep Mitch Greenlick, who in the past has concentrated on such worthy endeavors as banning children in bike trailers and making possession of cigarettes a crime.

The bill bans such deadly features as “pistol grips” and “barrel shrouds” because clearly they add to the lethality of any firearm. These people are so full of hatred for gun owners they don’t even understand what they are banning.

Never have we seen legislation that was a product of so much ignorance and blind hatred. And don’t take any comfort from the claims that bills of this kind are not going to get a hearing. You will recall that last session they said the same thing about a ban on licensed carry in schools. They claimed it was dead and then revived it in the closing days of the session without even allowing public testimony. It was only your relentless efforts that killed it. And now we need you again. Please use our automailer to send a message to the legislature to do all they can to stop HB 3200 and any bill like it. You can use the message provided or write your own.

The Democrats are drunk with their power. They have worked since the end of the Civil War to disarm the American public. They ignore the fact that 49% of American voters were opposed to them.:eek:

Well that means 51% support them or are ignorantly indifferent...and that's all the left needs to win, ignorance and indifference. I have thought about a similar situation that would clarify our position for gun owners and came up with this: suppose your town council or state decided that Pit Bulls posed a risk to children due to their reputation, misplaced or not, for viciousness and a propensity to attack and kill other pets and children. The legislature passed a ban on the sale, breeding and possession of all Pit Bulls with no grandfathering. Would you be willing to turn in your pet to be put down? My hunch is that their reaction would be slightly different than "but who needs a Pit Bull anyway..."

November 2012 didn't do much good for us. If the Republicans that did not vote had voted for Romney, we would not be having these conversations!

I sure as hell hope California bans using these guns in movies. They would scare me!

If this isn't a trump card to you're proposals... I wish someone like this would have been (even allowed) at Sandy Hook... and the law-abiding gun owners at the Aurora shooting are probably still beating themselves up about obeying their laws.

Oregon is one of the states likely to pass draconian gun control this year.

Yeah, this really sucks. One of the main reasons I moved to Oregon from California was to escape tyrannical gun laws. We just have to keep on fighting. There's no rest for the weary when it comes to defending freedom.

One of the reasons this crap continues to be forced on us is that the a$$hats that force this stuff on us aren't held accountable for their poor decisions.

There's a slew of more anti 2A laws being proposed right now. It never even slows down.
